Stephanie and Peter, they live in Germany, they can’t have a child, they have tried and waited for five years, but Stephany can’t get pregnant. So, they have decided to go out of the country, to a vacation in Senegal to relax and rest. A few days in Senegal they decided to go up for adoption. They adopted a thirteen years old girl named; Amala, her dad died in 2006 in a war and her mom died, while she was giving birth to her. Stephanie and Peter hearing that Amala’s parents were so shocked, they promised her to treat her well like her real parents. One year later after getting to know each other, they decided to go back to Germany with their adopted daughter. Amala asks them if there were black people in Germany, no there are no black people in Germany, Peter said. Amala didn’t like it, because she knew that she was going to be lonely without any friend, she seemed really sad, but her adoptive parents told her that everyone will like her because she had really good qualities, she was; brilliant, honest, truthful and so on. The next day they went back to Germany, Amala started calling Peter “dad”, and Stephany “mom”. 

Perhaps Amala didn’t feel comfortable with it, she didn’t have the same body color with them, she thought that she was really ugly than them. Amala whenever she tries to go outside to play with others, but everyone stays away from her, because of her skin color. She rushed quickly into her room crying, her adoptive parents told her that they didn’t adopt her because she was ugly, but because she was brilliant and she needs to be strong for her skin color and showing others that she’s independent. She was proud of her skin color, no matter what? She was really happy because of her skin color. The next morning, her adoptive parents told her that they wanted to enroll her in school and start studying like everyone else, and they encouraged her to stop other white people bullying her because of her skin color, she needs to be strong.

The next day, she went for inscription to school and they allowed her to study at school. Everyone laughs at her skin color, and says that she is adopted, because if she is not adopted her parents will be black not white. Amala arrives at home unhappy, her parents needed to see her always happy like other children, to stay calm not worrying about her skin color. On tuesday, it was her birthday, everyone was invited but nobody needed to talk with her or sit with her, and have a little chat. Her mum told her that she was really sorry. I’m alright, everything is fine you have nothing to worry about, i’m black i have to be strong, Amala said. Later in the morning, when she woke up she found nobody in the house. She went upstairs to check-up their room. She found nobody. She tried to call all her parents, however nobody responded to her phone call. She decided to hold on, that probably they will call her. At midnight, she had a call from an unknown number. She was scared to take it, she thought that it would be her adoptive parents, a man on the phone speaking in a strange voice, saying that if she needs her mum back she has to give them 100, 000, 000$ in cash. She was so worried even if they weren’t her real parents, she had to do something, Amala had no idea where to get the money, she was young and she was not old enough to have a job. She told her parents’ family that they were kidnaped. Her parent’s family did not want to help, because she was black. Amala then asks them if they cared about her, because she was black. Amala asks them if they care about them. They told her that they care about them, they didn’t want her to help without the same skin color. Amala didn’t sleep the whole night, sitting on her bed, thinking what can she do, everyone likes her even though they have different skin colors. In the morning, Amala wakes up stressed, exhausted. She had again a call from the unknown number, telling her that she has only ten days remaining or else they would kill them. She called her parents’ family, to tell them what happened, they have only ten days remaining, either they will kill them. Day one, her parents’ family were making a plan without her so she decided to make her own plan. Her parents family’s plan was to give them the money, and they give them back, Stephanie and Peter. That wasn’t fair to Amala, her plan was to give them fake money on top of real money, and then she could call the cops, hide and attack the kidnappers. Day two, Amala was sitting the whole night, praying for them, nothing could happen to them. There was a “but”. Amala asked herself, «but, why would the kidnappers kidnap her parents?», kidnappers can’t just kidnap you, like that they always have a reason, nobody knows. she hopes she will ask them for their return. Few days later, they had to give the money, each of her parents’ family,and they contributed the money together. After they were done making their plan they decided to call the unknown number, to ask where they will meet to give them their money, the kidnappers told them to meet at Lac Ammer, at the north end of the lake is a pair of such villages. Amala went in the morning, without telling her parents’ family, she didn’t want them to waste their money, she covered the top with real money and on the bottom with fake money. Amala called the cops and they’re hiding, the kidnappers came to take their money, your hands in the back right now, the cops said! and attacked them! Her parents were surprised that she rescued them. Stephanie and Peter’s family were getting ready to go and rescue them, yet they were home. Stephanie and Peter’s family was shocked that Amala rescued them. They immediately apologized to her, tears in their eyes, she told them also what was her plan: she didn’t have to spend her money. They have an amazing dinner together, excited, enjoyable, lovely. Thereafter, it began getting late, everyone was gone, but Amala didn’t forget her question to her parents. But why did the kidnappers kidnap you without me? Amala asks. Her dad tells her that; few years before they adopted her, they had a debt, because they know we are rich, their boss wants to take our wealth, but don’t worry now we’re fine. She was such a brilliant girl. that you could imagine.                             

 Amala tries to explain to her family and other white people, that her color is dope, beautiful and rich like them. She tells them that we can’t be judged by the color of our skin. Amala started becoming an orator, giving speeches about black people, about skin colors and so on. The next morning, she was walking in school everybody staring at her like a queen. She was surprised, because nobody was bullying her. Amala started making some friends, spending her time with her friends, working together. Arriving at home, every member of her family was crying, but her parents weren’t there. She asked what happened, her auntie told her that this time it was difficult to rescue her parents because they kidnapped them and the kidnappers brought them to another country. Which country, Amala asks. We don’t know yet, her auntie said. Her auntie told her that; few years ago, they kidnapped her mother, because the kidnappers had a debt for my mother, and they kidnapped her so that she couldn’t report them to the police, even now they don’t know where she is the police investigated and they still didn’t find out anything about her. All the family decided to stay together, to make sure nobody got kidnapped again. Suddenly her auntie got a call and she put on a speaker so everyone could hear. 

A kidnapper, in a strange voice said to them, one of them must go to Colombia alone without somebody to accompany him or her. Amala then says to them that she will go, no one needed her to go, she was young. Neither Amala, because of her speeches, but she couldn’t leave her adoptive parents to die, like her real parents. They resolved to go to Columbia together and to go see the kidnappers. It will be just one person. The unknown number called again, and told them to meet together tomorrow in the morning at 2:00 am. in the forest each and everyone were afraid, what if they had guns? and kidnap them at the same time?. in the middle of the night, Amala woke up, she went to buy a carry gun while she went to see these kidnappers. At 2:00 am, in the morning they woke up, Amala told them that she had a gun, they asked her for what?, she told them; if the kidnappers wants to shoot them, she will then pull out the gun, so that they can’t shoot us. Wow you’re so brilliant! what if there are many, like a big group, they have many guns and you’re just the only one who has the gun, her auntie said. Arriving in the forest, there were some kind of noise, strange and scary voices. Amala’s parents were sobbing and the kidnappers yelling at them. The kidnappers came with masks on and told them to give them 1000,000,000$ each. They didn’t want to give all that money, they told them to reduce the money, besides they didn’t want to reduce it. Amala wished to see their faces, but she had no idea on how to. The whole family told Amala to make the same plan, she had to give them fake money, and on top with real money. Amala was lost into her thoughts. Her auntie asked her what she was thinking, Amala told her, and told her she wanted to see the kidnapper’s faces. Well, Amala might have an idea; the idea was to go in the forest, spy on them and follow their car to see their faces and where they live and call the police. At 10:00pm, it started getting late and they went to spy on the kidnappers, then followed them up to where they live. OMG! it was her aunt’s husband, they called the police and arrested them. They reached home and interrogated her aunt if she knew about this. I swear I didn’t know he was the one doing this because he told me that he was in the U.S.A working, her aunt said. I guess, I should go to visit him and ask him why he was doing this?, her parents said no at the same time, she’s still young, she’s not old enough to be going everywhere like an adult, fine, in the morning we will be there, Amala said. The next morning, her parents escorted her, to visit her uncle. They asked her uncle, why would he kidnap her mother?, her uncle was so angry, he hit the table with a lot of anger and yelled at Amala that all of this is because of her mother, she doesn’t want to give him some money. Amala told him that it’s not by force, they left. Later, they went back to Germany, and Amala began again writing her speeches and sharing them with other people. There were no kidnappers again. Her grandparents saw things that she did they told her; she was a “brilliant adopted black girl”. They didn’t waste their money giving them to kidnappers, because of her. She was a very brave girl. In the evening they celebrated, og Amala rescuing her parents and welcomed Amala into their family, they liked her, from now on it doesn’t matter what skin color she has. They were a very happy family. Few years later, Amala’s birthday was approaching, soon she would turn eighteen years old. She becomes an adult, begins working, creating her own business, going out without accompanying her. In the morning she writes down in her notebook, her meetings that, every Saturday she will be sharing her speeches one of her favourite moments. Her parents call her down stairs and surprise her, with a very big surprise; a car, range rover 2020. She was so happy, her best gift ever, but that day it was her real mom’s birthday and she was a little bit sad. Her adoptive parents asked her if she would like her own house or stay with them in their house because she’s now mature. But, Amala didn’t want to stay at her own place, she told them that she would like to stay with them.
